Hi, A friend of mine has a computer with an amd 64bit athlon cpu. His computer came with windows xp home edition but thats something i dont understand, i heard that windows xp x64 edition only came only in professional, so does he have the original 32bit version of windows xp installed?

Yes XP home is a 32bit OS if your friend wants to try out the 64bit version of xp you can get a 6month free trial copy off the microsoft website. Driver support is not very good for the 64bit version thou so I have heard so you're friends probably better off waiting for vista to come along.
